The LG K50 is an exponent of the new batch of mid-range mobiles that are reaching the market with very competitive prices and features. An alternative to the smartphone cucumber without having to invest a month's salary. The K50 has many arguments to become a safe purchase , such as the presence of a double camera on the rear, a rather beautiful design with an infinity screen and glass rear or DTS: X 3D Surround sound to enjoy an immersive sound experience with our headphones. We wanted to gather in this article the five key features of the LG K50, which you can buy in stores for a price of 200 euros .

Double camera with bokeh effect
They are not the three cameras of the LG Q60 Triple Cam, but the LG K50 still offers us an interesting photographic set with a double camera on the back . The first lens has a resolution of 13 megapixels, while the secondary one stays at two megapixels. Its function is to provide information about the space so that we can take portrait photos with a blur effect. The level of blur can be changed both when going to take the photo and afterwards.
We also have other interesting features such as AI Cam's artificial intelligence to improve the final result of photos or the Google Lens function, which analyzes a photo we take to offer information about the object photographed in real time.
Elegant design in blue
You have to admit it. Manufacturers are increasingly making more beautiful designs for mid-range and even entry-level equipment, and the LG K50 is no exception. This model has two configurations, one more classic in black and the other in a nice blue color (which is what we have been able to touch). The glass back is curved and features an elegant gradient effect . Both the grip and the thickness of the mobile have been worked on to make it comfortable to use.
On the front we have an infinite screen with hardly any frames on the top and sides, although at the bottom we do have a slightly thicker frame. In this case, it has been chosen to use a notch or eyebrow to house the front camera.
This really is a novelty. We have become accustomed to the fact that LG's top teams since the days of the LG V30 have military certification, but what is not normal is to find this same resistance in an affordable 200-euro model. The LG K50 is MIL-STD-810G certified . In other words, it has passed several very demanding tests to show its resistance to shocks, high and low temperatures, humidity or falls. There is no doubt that it is a life jacket for day to day, in which we face all kinds of accidents that can end up with our useless mobile.
Another interesting feature of this LG K50 is that it does not abandon, far from it, the audio section. For users who want to have a more intense experience at the audio level, it incorporates DTS-X 3D sound . Thanks to this, we can enjoy surround sound in the case of having headphones compatible with this system. Additionally, it improves bass reproduction and dialogue clarity in series and movies.
Not bad at all if we take into account that mobiles in this price range do not usually pay as much attention to the sound section. And it is a clear example of LG's commitment to sound enthusiasts , as we have seen in high-end models such as the LG V50 or the LG G8s.
The Korean company has also wanted to give it extra functionality and options through software additions. For example, the LG K50 has a dedicated button exclusively to be able to use the Google assistant . If you are not familiar with this platform, it is an assistant that allows you to perform all kinds of functions with just a voice command. For example, you can control the smart devices in the house, perform Internet searches, open different apps, or even ask Google to tell you a joke. Best of all, it's a constantly improving tool, so its range of features will grow over time.
Another feature that LG has wanted to differentiate with is a screen capture mode that allows you to immortalize a web page and return to it when you open the capture in the gallery. A good way to save clippings or news that have caught your attention with the option to reread them completely with a single touch. Or, to save products that have caught your attention but that you do not have time or money to buy at the moment.
In short, we are facing a model that despite its moderate price of 200 euros brings a good selection of features to differentiate it from other mid-range models. If you are thinking of changing your phone, the LG K50 can be an excellent option without having to scratch your pocket .
